NOTES FROM THE COLLECTIVE
FIVE EXPERT TIPS FOR LUSH LASHES
Every woman dreams of a pair of long, lush lashes that would put Hollywood glamour girls to
shame. Unfortunately, to achieve this look it requires us to stand in front of a mirror for hours, pok-
ing and prodding our poor lashes with the torture device otherwise known as the metal eyelash
curler. So is there really a way to achieve to-die-for-lashes without, well, feeling like you want to
die? The answer is yes.
Under One Condition Conditioners aren’t just for after shampooing. Get and maintain pretty,
strong lashes with an eyelash conditioner that simply brushes on like mascara and conditions your
lovely lashes throughout the day. We recommend Talika’s Oil-Free Lash Conditioning Cleanser
which acts as a gentle mascara remover and a conditioner all-in-one.
B is for Biotin Biotin is a vitamin B supplement that is often found in health and cosmetic products. It is used to strengthen
hair and nails, keeping them long and lush. The good news is – it can also do this for your lashes and it usually runs for only $4
Heated Eyelash Curlers Nix the old metal curler (as if we had to pull your leg) and trade it in for a more
comfortable, better working alternative. Heated eyelash curlers work wonders for tiny lashes and they
only use a slight hint of heat, leaving no worries about burns or singes. These new wonders take the “The best
